Please excuse me for yesterday, Feb. 15. I am at a conference and was not able to play. Today I was able to sit down and try some yamahas that were on display. I played a little of the Chopin nocturne and then the piano played it back to me.

Putting myself on report for February 21st and 22nd. I came down with a nasty cold. Between the cold and the cold meds focusing enough to practice was not possible.

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.

I have been wondering lately if there's something wrong with SwissMS. She hasn't posted in over a month and that's not like her... I hope I'm wrong. Does anyone know anything?

Hi,
I know this is not going so well for me.I missed practicing from Feb 25th-Feb 28th. I need increase my stamina and still be able to practice after a day at work. Also, I do on most days would have time in the morning before work to practice. That is if I get up early. The getting up early is the problem, but I am working on that. Really, I am tired of every week saying that I am going to get to the piano more and then not doing it. However, it is the beginning of a new month today and can also be the beginning of me practicing like I should. I am back on the wagon today though. I do hope SwissMS is ok.

I know my solution is not for everyone, in fact I'll go on a limb and say it is for almost no one except me! But I too have problems playing in the morning or getting up early. Instead I play very late before bed. About 80% of my practice is between 1am and 3am. (I said this is for almost no one!) But as a consequence, not only have I not missed a day since December 26th, but since I started my piano practice journal on January 8th, I've never practiced less than 60 minutes in a day. So it's working for me.

Had to miss both 2/27 and 2/28 for business travel. I should have been home in time to practice on 2/28, but my &@)%$# flight ended up arriving 20 hours late. I could have walked home and arrived before that plane did!

Back at it today.

Hi,

When I do think about it Tryone when I do practice it usually has been in the evenings before bed. Glad to know I am not the only one who has trouble getting up early. Thanks for the advice. I will try to do most of my practicing in the evening before bed see how that goes.

Hi gang! I am back. I had a rough time of it in February, and have actually been away from piano for more than a month. I had bronchitis for two months, which threw me into an MS relapse. Between the vision problems and overwhelming fatigue, I have not had the energy to play or even visit piano world. All is well now, but I am likely to be relocating in the near future, so I may be a bit hit and miss.

So, to catch up!

Oh SwissMS, I'm very sorry to hear you have been so unwell and hope you are back to full strength soon.
Take care of yourself, relocating is sure to take it out of you too! But we will be interested to hear all about it when the time comes

Hi,

SwissMS I am glad you are doing better. I did not practice yesterday Mar.4. I could have practiced if I would have not procrastinated after getting home from work.

Hi SwissMS, I'm sorry to hear you have been unwell. I hope your recovery will continue steadily.

I need to be excused March 4-6 for being on a short vacation with my family.

Hi,
Actually I was not quite back on the wagon on March 5. Please excuse me for March 5, 6, and 7. I have not really been feeling well. I did make it to the piano on March 8.
